biography of Willem Vester

Willem Vester, schilder van vooral romantische zomer- en winterlandschappen, woonde en werkte het grootste deel van zijn leven in Haarlem. Hij was de zoon van een meester-metselaar maar door zijn opvallende artistieke talent kon hij in de leer komen bij Jan Jacob Spohler, door wie hij beïnvloed werd in stijl en onderwerpkeuze. Meer dan vijftig jaar, van 1841 tot 1895, nam hij deel aan de jaarlijkse Tentoonstelling van Levende Meesters. Er zijn ook stadsgezichten en portretten van hem bekend. Willem Vester was de grootvader van de bekende beeldhouwer Mari Andriessen.
